22/03/23 Flora survey: Yellingbo

Notes from: a Friends of the Helmeted Honeyeater hosted citizen science event.
Like last month, it's a time of year when there's not a lot flowering in the Yellingbo Nature Conservation Area bush, but that didn't lessen our enthusiasm! It was an overcast but warm, still morning. Perfect for a walk. We hit one of the tracks that I haven't walked in years, and others have never been on, meandering past swampy areas on one side and open pasture on the other. There were plenty of birds around so we recorded those too - 36 species in all, with 3 Wedge-tailed Eagles overhead, a male Mistletoe Bird feeding in the Grey Mistletoe, a Jacky Winter and 4 Willie Wagtails hunting for insects together being highlights. A Southern Water Skink was out basking on the swamp edge, whilst the butterflies mostly flew off before we could get photos. How hard are they to photograph?! The Ringed Xenica's stood still long enough for a photo, but none of the other species did - there's always next time!
Lots of friendly chatter just added to the joy of being out in the bush. Thank you team :)
